Keep making those moves. We are less than two weeks away from Survivor Series but you might not know it by just glancing at WWE TV. The show has not gotten the highest level of attention or build so far and it is starting to show. There is still time to make adjustments though, and that was the case this week as two more names were moved off of the pay per view card.
This week on SmackDown, two wrestlers were removed from their respective Survivor Series teams. First, Aliyah was removed from the SmackDown Women’s Survivor Series team by Sonya Deville, who was advised to make the change by an unidentified person. Later, Sami Zayn lost his spot after he was defeated by Jeff Hardy in a match where the loser would be removed. There was no replacement named for either Aliyah or Zayn.
It was a busy night. Check out the action and the announcements:
Opinion: This is a case where I flat out do not get WWE’s thinking. They made the announcements of these teams last week and now there have already been three roster changes. That seems to be the story of the match rather than the teams wanting to face each other. Outside of a quick “we’re going to win”, neither team from either show has really acknowledged the other. WWE might want to work on that with a week to go rather than tweaking the lineups over and over.
What do you think of the changes? Who do you have winning? Let us know in the comments below.
